billion merger early this monday we'll take you inside the $3 billion merger early this monday morning may 3rd, 2010. captioning funded by cbs on this very wet monday morning, maggie is off this morning and sitting in for her is betty nguyen. good morning.itting in for her >> good morning, everybody. >> we've got a lot of news to get to. first the hunt is on for the man who may have been behind the wheel of that botched car bomb saturday. jim axelrod is there and has the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the key may be in one or two of the thousands of security cameras here in times square. since the about himming attempt, police have been combing through hours of surveillance video looking for a suspect. the nypd is focused on finding a white man in his 40s seen here changing his shirt in an alley near the vehicle with the bomb.
7:02 am
in the video, he's looking back at the suv as he leaves the scene just at the time the bomb was set to go off. sources tell cbs news the bomb found in the nissan pathfinder was crudely built with little chance of detonating. but the people packing times square saturday might certainly didn't know that. >> we heard an explosion sound. we didn't know what it was, but everybody started running and they made us run, too, because we were scared. >> reporter: the path glt finder had three propane tanks inside, two red five gallon containers filled with gas, two crocs with batteries and electrical wire, fireworks and 100 pounds of fertilize ergs though not the kind that could explode about. >> it would have caused a significant fireball. clearly it was the intent to cause mayhem, to create casualties. >> reporter: duane jackson was one of the hero, a street vendor selling t-shirt just eight feet from the car.
7:03 am
he called over a mounted cop when things didn't seem right to him. >> looked inside the window and there were the keys in the car and the car was running. and then you heard this little pop, pop, pop, which was almost like a firecracker going off and stuff. and then the sparks inside the car. could you see them. >> reporter: the suv had connecticut plates that did not match the vehicle and were traced to an auto repair shop there. and u.s. officials tell cbs news they are not putting very much stock in claims from the taliban in pakistan taking credit for the attempted bombing. harry? >> jim axelrod in times square here in new york. thank you. joining us from washington is the secretary of the department of homeland security, janet napolitano. madame secretary, good morning. >> good morning. >> does this feel like a solo act or do you believe a conspiracy might be involved? >> i think that we don't know enough yet to conclude one way or the other. i think we know that there are
7:04 am
investigative leads that need to be pursued. they are being pursued through a joint task force including the new york city police department and fbi and law enforcement officials from our department. so every lead that has been generated is being tracked to its source. >> this has been described as amateurish, we think about zazi oig. is a successful terror at track inevitable in the united states? >> every time an event like this occurs, we send information out to state, local law enforcement. they are the eyes and ears of the law enforcement community around the country watching out for abandoned vehicles or this this case as a very alert pedestrian noticed, you know, smoke coming out of a vehicle. everybody needs to be and is a
7:05 am
part of the process here of being watchful, of being vigilant. but can we give you 100% guarantee that one these things might not be successful? no. we can only work as we are to make sure risk is minimized. >> because it's interesting. one of the newspaper he is said 11 times that new york has been at least the target of an attack since 9/11. most of these failed hfr-clearly failed attempts. but as long as the door gets knocked on enough, it seems like at some point something will happen. do you think the country is mentally prepared for this? >> oh, i think we have a very strong mentally prepared country and i think new york city has one of the most robust law enmee enforcement and security structures of the entire country.
7:06 am
so, yes, we work together to minimize risk and if one of these attacks were to, in fact, succeed, we would be prepared to respond very quickly. >> secretary janet napolitano, we thank you very much for your time this morning. >> thank you. now to the growing disaster in the gulf. it is a race against the clock to try to stop the massive oil flow from turning in to what president obama calls a potentially unprecedented environmental disaster. mark strassmann is in empire, louisiana with the latest. good morning, mark. >> reporter: good morning. the u.s. navy admiral in charge of emergency operations here says that this oil leak could get as much as 20 times worse, that's 100,000 barrels of oil a day or 4 million gallons, which is why president obama came here urging the fastest possible fix. >> how do we plug this hole? >> reporter: this is now a race against time. so president obama came to louisiana to inspect this emergency operation and to
7:07 am
remind everyone especially bp about the top priority, seal that gushing well. >> so let me be clear. bp is responsible for this leak. bp will be paying the bill. but as president of the united states, i'm going to spare no effort to respond to this crisis for as long as it continues. >> reporter: every day, another 5,000 barrels of oil leak into the gulf of mexico. bp, the oil giant responsible here, blames a faulty piece of equipment it's trying to repair. >> this is like doing open heart surgery at 5,000 feet in the dark with robot-controlled submarines. >> reporter: this growing spill now stretches 130 miles long, 70 miles wide. the size of puerto rico. landfall is projected in the theks next 72 hours somewhere between louisiana and alabama. >> all this is my office. rurt pete young is a fishing boat captain in venice, louisiana. worried that waves of oil could
7:08 am
kill fishing in these marshlands and his livelihood. >> without this, we have nothing. we're going to be in a lot of trushl if something doesn't happen. >> reporter: for fishermen like him, this spill just went from bad to worse. they're all out of work for at least nine more days because a fishing ban is now in effect from louisiana to part of the florida panhandle. >> mark strassmann in empire, louisiana. thank you. joining us now from houma, louisiana is the ceo of bp. we heard the president say bp is responsible for this. does your cota 100% responsibility for this leak and the costs associated with it? >> this is not our accident, but it's our responsibility to deal with it, to arrest the leak, to deal with the oil on the
7:09 am
surface, to ensure there is no or minimal environmental damage. and where there are legitimate claims for business interruption rum , we will make that good. >> so the people affected, whether businesses affected by this oil spill. >> that is correct. >> and when it comes to those livelihoods, can you give the folks who are affected any indication of how long it might take for this leak to be contained? >> we're working on three options in the subsea. the first is the intervention on what's called the blowout preventer which is the valve system at the top of the well which has failed. it's you been precedented the failure, but it has failed. we're using submersible robots to work on that. it's a bit like doing open heart surgery at 5,000 feet beneath the surface.
7:10 am
the second operation we're working on is to install -- you can think of it as the hood of your oven across the top of the leak to channel the oil to surface and deal with it on the surface. that will be in the field next weekend and the third thing that we're doing is we're drilling a relief well to intersect this well and that began operations yesterday. so that's the leak arresting. in addition to that, we clearly have a massive, massive operation on the surface to contain the spill. we're doing something that's never been done before. we're deploying disbursement on the seabed at the source of the leak. that appears to be having a significant impact on the a oil getting to the surface. on the surface, we have a fleet getting to the surface. on the surface, we have a fleet of 100 vessels to contain the spill. we are disbursing disbursent
7:11 am
from almost an air force of planes before we have five planes including two hercules c-130s deploying disbursement p. and thus far we've been successful in not letting this get to the shore and we are absolutely focused on that. in the event that it does get to the shore, we've launched an enormous effort with the local communities and the national guard to defend the beaches. and in the last 48 hours, we've signed up 700 fishing vessels. we've trained 3 1/2 thousand people in how to deal with it and that effort will continue to ramp up. we're working very closely with the local communities to ensure that they are prepared should oil reach the shore. >> we appreciate your information this morning. the ceo of bp. thank you for your time. >> thank you very much.
7:12 am
so much in unchartered territory here with an unprecedented amount of oil coming out. >> and growing by the day. >> indeed. and since you're here and maggie is off, chris wragge is at the news desk. >> who is right, left? good morning. this morning in nashville, the cumberland level is at itsest level in 50 years. the storm left 15 dead. tennessee and mississippi hardest hit. jeff glor is in gulfport, mississippi for us this morning. >> reporter: good morning. here in gulfport, the relentless rains continue this morning, but as you mentioned, the situation even worse farther north in nashville. floodwaters closed interstate 24 stranding car and sleeping away a christian school building.
7:13 am
it's already the wettest may on record in nashville with 13.5 inches of rain by sunday night. and in some areas southwest of nashville, almost twice as much rain fell. more than 24 inches. near memphis, the storm hit annie beasley especially hard. >> it's destroyed our home, it's our first home. and we've got a baby coming in a few week. >> reporter: 200 miles west in scotland, arkansas, a tornado friday night flattened michael stobaugh's home. >> our living room is in our neighbor's house. >> reporter: people are bracing for more of these storms today with the possibility of more flooding and more tornadoes. chris? >> jeff glor in gulfport. thank you very much. a police officer in detroit has been killed, four others wounded this morning.officers were responding to a 911 call. they were met with gunfire as

7:31 am
we'll bring you that in just a bit. but first, today marks an unfortunate anniversary. it was three years ago that madeleine mccann disappeared from her holiday resort in portugal, but so far there are no real leads on what happened to her. cbs news correspondent elizabeth palm ser is in london with more. >> reporter: yes, overs last three years, there have been literally hundreds of alleged sightings of little madeleine, but not one has panned back. her parents hope one day they will find her alive. and to mark this anniversary, they've released a new video. ♪ its focus, the mccann's search for their daughter three years nonstop handing outposters and photos, combing the internet, and responding to tips from the public. the couple have also spoken out in an interview on portuguese tv about what they saw the night madeleine vanished. >> the shutters which had been
7:32 am
down all week, and when i went in and there was a gust that blew the quarter continues open, that's when i noticed that the shutter had been pulled up. >> reporter: on the night of may the 3rd, 2007, the mccanns left their three children sleeping in the family's vacation condo and went to dinner at a restaurant 100 yards away. around 10:00 when kate went to check on the children, she found madeleine was gone. the mccanns have dismissed the theory that she wandered off. they're convinced she was abducted. >> is it theoretically possible madeleine left the possible, then yes. do we think she was capable of leaving the apartment and by which exit did she leave, then absolutely not. >> reporter: since 2007, photos of madeleine have been widely publicized, one shows her distinctive right eye, another is a projection of how she might look two years on.
7:33 am
all of them designed to provoke someone somewhere to come forward and shed some real light on a little girl's fate. the mccann's are now saying that they'll ask the portuguese police to reopen their investigation to follow up leads that private investigators have uncovered, investigators working for the family. >> elizabeth palmer, thank you. joining us from washington is pat brown, author of the profiler. good morning to you. >> good morning, betty. >> there's been some criticism by the mccanns about the investigation, specifically saying that not much has been done. is that truly the situation or is it an instance where the leads have just gone cold in this case? >> well, i think it's a combination of a lot of things. one is that one theory was that the child was abducted. and another theory was that she died in the apartment and h this of course is the theory the mccanns aren't too happy about. and they don't want that one out there. and so they're still angry at the portuguese police. and this is one thing i don't
7:34 am
think they should bring up at this point in time. after three years that they're looking to get the cooperation of the police, it's not the time to say you're not following up our leads and they also mentioned that it's possible they aren't following up the leads because they don't want the child to be found alive because that would be embarrassing. not what you want to say. you want to keep it positive and say -- ask for somebody's help and not bring anything negative into the conversation. >> how important is this new picture of what possibly madeleine looks like today going to be to that investigation? >> i think it's very important to have both pictures out there, one of course so that the people remember her at the time so if they're looking back and they remember seeing something, they will say, oh, yes, that was madeleine. and the other picture is terribly important because if she were still alive out there, then they would obviously want to have people looking for the child as she is today. >> and private investigators found any significant leads that you know of? >> not that i know of. even since the very beginning when they have believed that the private investigators had great
7:35 am
leads that weren't being followed up on, i never saw that they panned out to be anything and they're saying that there's other leads that aren't being followed up and i don't know what those are and i don't think anybody really does. i don't know what leads they could be finding at this point in time. >> so at this time, should it be more about closure for the family or truly is there a situation where possibly she could be found alive? >> well, for the mccanns, if they're innocent of any wrongdoing in this whole situation, of course they're going to continue to want to search for their child. they're always going to believe their child is out there. that would be normal for any parent whose child has gone missing. they're not going to give up on her. so they're doing the right thing in that sense that they're trying to keep her in the public eye. and quite frankly, this child has been seen everywhere. i mean, as far as missing children go, she's one of the most publicized missing children in the world. so that's one of the most unusual things about h. with her picture out as much as it's been out there, she would have to be pretty well hid gone her not to have shown up anyplace at h point. >> the parents are definitely holding on to hope.

after rejecting the idea a couple years ago, continental and united announced plans this morning to finally merge. it will create the world's largest airline.
7:41 am
but is it a good deal or a bad deal for passengers? let's ask cbs news travel editor peter greenberg who joins us from washington. good morning. >> good morning. >> you and i have been talking about this now for a couple of days. overall, does this feel like a good thing? >> they've been trying to merge for about ten years. the new airline will have ten hub, it will fly to 370 destinations over 59 countries. it will take the third largest care yes, united, merge it with the fifth largest carrier, continental, call it united and it will become the largest in the world. every executive you will talk to will tell youhrinking their air. >> what do you think it will mean to airfares? >> well, it's the law of supply and demand. right now they only compete on 13 long roots, but it's the
7:42 am
small hall and i go thul that m difference. a number of destinations where both service those community, you'll see a reduction in service. it is inevitable. >> which will h probably end up meaning an increase in fares. what everybody was asking around here. so what happens to frequent flyer miles? >> i'm shock that had someone would ask that question. bottom line is this. initially nothing will happen because remember united and continental already combine their programs. however, availability is the key here. and if you've got fewer flights and fewer seats, that means fewer available rewarsd. but this doesn't kick in until at least the fourth quarter. it has a lot of hurdles to get over before it happens. >> the other question that's interesting is years ago united had kind of a sterling reputation, continental was great and then it went into bad times. it's in better times thousand. you make a choice between united and continental, what do you think of the choice of the name? >> it's interesting.
7:43 am
it will be the united name, but the planes will be painted in continental livery. they have a new model called let's fly together. i guess they will be for a heil. the bottom line is united doesn't have a stellar service reputation. this is the airline that intentionally disconnected its customer complaint phone lines. so they have some work to do. >> okay. peter greenberg, thank you very much. up next, lashing out at jay leno for the first time. conan o'brien tells his side of the late night wars story. this is "the early show" on cbs. traveled to fairbanks, alaska. home of one of the coldest, longest nights on the planet. and asked frequent heartburn sufferers to take prilosec otc for two weeks. the results? prilosec otc's 24 hour heartburn protection gave a whole lot of people their days and nights back. ♪ [ cheering ] [ man ] prilosec otc has let me live the life that i love.

8:01 am
we'll talk with animal expert jeff corwin in just a little bit. but first, here's chris wragge at the news desk this morning. good morning. at this time it's not believed saturday's attempted car bombing in new york's times square is tied to any known terrorist organization. but authorities are looking for one possible suspect. bob orr is in washington with the latest for us this morning. >> reporter: no one's yet been arrested, but investigators say they do have some strong leads. and sther's looking for a person of interest spotted by a security camera in midtown manhattan. investigators now are pressing a search for the man in this surveillance picture. a camera a half block away from the explosives filled van captured these images of the man acting suspiciously around the same time smoke was seen coming from the vehicle. >> we're currently examining video that shows a white male in his 40s in schubert alley looking back in the direction of
8:02 am
west 45th. he also was seen shedding a dark colored shirt, wheeling a red one und nooet. >> reporter: because the device did not explode and the car was not destroyed, police have a wealth of forensic evidence and investigators are using motor vehicle logs and toll booth records to show the ownership history and recent movements. u.s. officials are brushing aside this claim reportedly from the pakistani taliban which says the attempted bombing was to avenge the recent deaths of key al qaeda leaders. but the incident does bear some of the hallmarks of an islamist terrorist operation. a high profile target crowded with potential victims, and it's strikingly similar to this 2007 propane bomb attack at the glasgow scotland airport. we have to say there's no solid evidence the new york and glasgow attacks are is connected, but homeland security is increasing patrols at east coast airports as a precaution. also, officials say there's no credible intelligence pointing
8:03 am
to a wider threat and they don't believe any car bombs are in the pipeline out there, but with so many unknowns, nothing can be ruled out. chris? >> bob orr in washington for us. thank you. a court convicted the loan gunman in mumbai. a pakistani is accused of gunning down dozens at a train station. he'll be sentenced tomorrow. india blames a pakistani militant group for the attack. warren buffett owns a $5 billion stake in the investment bank goldman sachs. this weekend he told his shareholders that he plans to keep his share of the company. rebecca jarvis spoke with him and joins us this morning. >> and i caught up with buffett at berkshire hathaway's annual shareholder meeting where he drew a record crowd of 40,000 people. what struck me most about america's favorite investor was his unyielding optimism about the state of the economy. >> nothing is going to sink this country. you want to bet against america,
8:04 am
you'll lose a lot of money. >> reporter: warren buffett's been betting on america for almost five decades. in that time, the berkshire hathaway ceo has returned an average of 20% every year to his shareholders. now 20 months after the near collapse of the u.s. economy, butch at the ti buffett says most of his businesses are hiring again, but the unemployment rate remains a very high 9.7%. >> we'll really come back pretty strong now. the unemployment comes back very slowly, but the american public was totally panicked by what happened in the fall of 2008. they were frozen in place. and it took a little while to get over that. and the government helped them get over that. >> reporter: buffett also remains supportive of banking giant goldman sachs even after revelations late last week of a criminal investigation into the firm's investing practices. take goldman sachs, $5 billion you have with that company. do you still trust them? >> absolutely. >> reporter: do you think -- what will to you if america
8:05 am
loses some trust in that company in. >> they've lost some trust. that's happened because of the news.>> they've lost some trust. that's happened because of the news. >> reporter: do you have a recommendation for how they can restore that rust? >> my bisk recommendation is get it right, get it fast, get it out, get it over. that's easier said than done. >> reporter: getting it right, does that mean maybe new management? >> no. it means getting the correct factual story out. >> we also tuchled touched on financial reform being debated in congress and buffett says it's unclear whether the reforms could have prevented the financial crisis, but he believes it marks an important progress for this country. >> getting it right sounds like a pretty good policy. >> everyone would love to get it right. >> rebecca, thank you. here now is skatity couric with a preview of tonight's cbs evening news. a heroic decision thousands of feet in the air. meet the texas woman who was plummeting to the ground when her parachute didn't open and the stranger who came to her rescue and lived to tell the tale.

8:07 am
the showers we're going to widen this down a little bit. this is not cooperating. we'll look at at the forecast today and come back to the radar. 84 is the high and we'll lose the rain soon, we'll get a few breaks of sun and d
8:08 am
>> announcer: this weather report sponsored by subway restaurants. subway now has breakfast. build your better breakfast, only at subway. seven past the hour. and that is a look at the weather as we begin this 8:00 hour. >> thanks, dave. as the massive oil slick continues to approach the gulf coast shores, there is growing fear about the devastation it could cause to local wildlife and their habitats. jeff corwin joins us with more now on that from gulfport, mississippi. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, harry. of course the people who live along the gulf are no strangers to hurricanes. but what's churning along these coasts is something vastly different. and the overall mood here is one of nervous anticipation as this community braces for the impact that could hit the local natural resources, which are, of course, are hallmark to the region.
8:09 am
at first glance, all looks serene. black skimmers glide look the water in search of food. but just offshore, an unprecedented environmental catastrophe is drifting this way. >> it has a great potential for wiping out the entire population along our coast area. >> reporter: 12,000 lease turns used to inhabit these shores. now they're only 2,000. it only takes about 20 days for the eggs to hatch and then another 20 days for the chicks to to actually leave the nest which means right now is the most critical period in the life cycle of these birds. and it's estimate that had more than 400 species would be impacted by this spill. dr. mobi is prepared to house and street treat up to 200 marine animals. for now his hangs are empty
8:10 am
except for a lone dolphin. if it things stay on court and this spill hits the way it's predicted to, how will this place be transformed? >> there are about 3,000 to 5,000 dolphins from here to the mouth of the river. so if many of them start coming in, it's going to be overwhelming. >> reporter: on sunday, a rescue team from his center recovered 13 sea turtles that have washed to shore, an unusually high number. while scientists have yet to determine if oil caused their death, there is concern that the turtle may be the first victims of this oil spill. the "exxon valdez" spill in 1989 left more than 2350,000 animals dead. if the spill in the gulf continues to flow at its current estimated rate, it would take only about six weeks to eclipse the valdez spill. >> there was a finite quantity. they knew they had 11 million gallons. here, we don't know. >> reporter: harry, the great challenge down here is we don't
8:11 am
know exactly when or where or even if the oil is going to hit this region. but what we do know is that when it does, it could potentially have a devastating impact in the local wildlife down here. so scientists are really trying to grapple with the challenge to maintain these species and to come up with a plan to save these animals. >> what happens to an animal if, for instance, it's swimming through -- we don't know exactly what happened to those turtle. but if they were swimming through that oil, what happens to them physically that would cause them to shut down and die? >> reporter: excellent question. for example, let's look at a dolphin. this is a marine mammal which means it breathes air. when it comes to the surface of the water, when his blow hole opens up, he will be breathing in oil and he can drown on the oil it takes in to its lungs those birds we featured are very rare animals. only 2,000 of these left. they also ironically feed in the
8:12 am
waters where the oil is. so when they go into that water, if they're not immediate will killed by the oil saturating their feathers, minimally they'll take that oil and feed to their off spring. what we have here is the ultimate pandora's box. and as this oil leaks out, and it invades the ecompany system, there's no way to get it out. >> some people have said the exxon value deez was much heavier crude, a little bit of a different situation. is there a way to compare this and exxon? >> reporter: well, one comparison that we could make is that both of these spills could have a dramatic impact. with valdez, a powerful impact on that local ecosystem. influence are big differences. up in prince william sound, the waters were much deeper. and the tides were far more rigorous and turbulent. and believe it or not that actually had a positive impact on the overall spill. here what we have are much
8:13 am
shallower waters. and it tends to have more of a stagnant effect. so when that oil comes in, it's here to stay. >> wow. jeff corwin, thank you very much for your expertise this morning. do appreciate it, sir. >> thanks, harry. up next, some important news about coffee and cancer when we come back. build your better breakfast at subway! for only $2.50, get a western egg white muffin melt, made-to-your-order, and add a 16-oz. cup... of freshly brewed seattle's best coffee. try the new $2.50 breakfast combo at subway. ♪ try the new $2.50 breakfast combo at subway. as long as there's sun, you and your family can go have fun. because banana boat blocks up to 96% of harmful uva and uvb rays. so you can go, go, go, confident you're protected from sunburn and long-term skin damage. banana boat. we've got you covered. while i was building my friendships, my family, while i was building my life, my high cholesterol was contributing to plaque buildup in my arteries.

8:17 am
20,000 women after menopause, found that those who consumed 2.5 cups of coffee per day had a significantly lower risk of uterine cancer. so put another notch in the column of coffee's benefits. >> what is it specifically about coffee? >> they're not sure. and obviously a lot more research needs to be done. this study did not find the same protective effect with other forms of caffeine unfortunately like chocolate or tea. but it might have to do with insulin levels or estrogen levels. it's really not clear. but, again, mounting evidence that the benefits of caffeine outweigh the risks. >> who is most at risk when it comes to uterine cancer? >> generally we say women who have high estrogen exposure. so those who might have a late menopause, who are obese, because excess body fat is another source of estrogen production. some women are infertility problems. and certainly women who have a rare but hereditary form of a
8:18 am
colon cancer, if you're not sure whether you're at high risk, absolutely you want to ask your gynecology fwis. and uterine cancer is treatable, so what are the symptoms when someone may be worried that perhaps they could have it? >> really the biggest one is abnormal bleeding. over the age of 35, if you're having abnormal bleeding or an increase in discharge, a change in urinary habits or pelvic pain or cramping, absolutely you want to talk to your doctor. >> and screening tests are out there? >> endo meet tree alibi on that city is a simple office procedure nap eat best screening test. but it's not widespread, so it's ways order symptoms and risk factors. >> so i need to start drinking coffee. but besides that, are there other things you can do, as well? >> the important things to reduce your risk other than the obvious ones like watching your diet and exercise, actually birth control pills can lower your risk of uterine cancer and that risk protection is seen up to ten years after discontinuing birth control pills.
8:19 am
again, you want to balance the risk versus benefits of oral contraceptives, but that's a good way. breath fe breast feeding can lower the risk because it drops your estrogen revels and diet and exercise very important. you want to keep your overall body weight down. >> and you want to add 2.5 cups of this to this diet. >> not more because we know that too much caffeine can have its effects. >> coming up in tomorrow's health watch, new information on birth control for women. we'll be right back. this is "the early show" on cbs. >> announcer: cbs "health watch" sponsored by kashi. seven whole grains on a mission. for all the moments that make every day special.

8:33 am
hello, everyone in western pennsylvania. betty, inside to you. >> you're single, you're indicatindating, but you're not having much fun. how do you get out of the rut? let's talk to andrea and ian. let's get right into this because you say date a nontype. what is that? >> a nontype is a guy who is not on your usual checklist of what you're looking for. so if you usually go for extroverts, a nontype would be an introvert fp or if you say
8:34 am
you would never date anyone long distance, your nontype might be across the country. but if you keep dating the same type of person, you have to try something new because your match may be actually the one you haven't tried dating yet. >> if he's not what i want, why should i shoot for that? >> well, i agree that it's nice to expand your boundaries a little bit, but a little sometimes you hear the word type and you think, oh, bad boy or bad girl. you're just dating the same person over and over again. but i want to say that sometimes having the type is a good thing. it's sort of the person that you're usually the type that you're attracted to, the type whom you share values with, maybe a similar lifestyle. so having a type and seeking out your type sometimes can be a really positive thing. >> that's true. okay. but some will argue, an dree, a you're asking people to just settle. settle for what they don't really want. >> absolutely not. i've dedicated the book to women who should never have to feel like they have to settle. i think we're settling when
8:35 am
we're just checking off superficial boxes on a checklist. and to your point, i think it's absolutely about core values and important criteria, but sometimes we're so focused on the paper checklist, we miss our match because of that. so that's really the heart of my book. >> do you agree that it may be possibly settling or should you reconsider what you're looking for? >> i think it's a little of both. i think the reality of the dating world today is it's very hard especially for single women. i meet confident, attractive add indicated successful women all the time. they would love to meet their type and they're not. so they do need to change their approach. on the other hand, you can't just change your type out of pressure because then you are just settling. so i think it's kind of getting out of that head space of pressure. >> when i talk to my girlfriends, a lot say i want him to be funny, kind. but a lot of them will be very truthful. he has to be good looking, he's got to be successful.
8:36 am
andrea, you say forget about it. >> definitely you should be attracted to the person. and i want to qualify something. if you're turned off by the person, don't date that person. but i'm simply saying that it has to transcend those things. tall, dark, rich, handsome. those are great things, but if you don't have more than that you may actually wake up in an unfulfilling relationship. >> on the other hand, you really have to look at where do you share values. if you have material goals and you're dating a starving artist type, it might not end up working out in the long run. let's be honest. most divorces in this country, the number one reason for divorce are financial issues. so it is important to really be aligned around some of those core values like money. if you don't feel that click of chemistry, that click of attraction, that might be a bad thing because know with my
8:37 am
wife, she would have been out there have a long time ago. >> it's not whether a guy has money, it's how is he with money. and looks and money are the most dynamic factors that we can invest in. there's to saying if you meet a guy with a great job who looks a certain way that that will withstand the test of time. so what i'm severally saying is definitely check off those boxes that your values are aligned and that you're attracted, but it has to go deeper than that. >> a lot of women grow up with that fairy tale, that prince charming who has absolutely everything. so as we listen to this, what should be the new checklist? >> i came up with a number of checklists in the book to help guide women towards their match. so by all means i think checklists are great. one of the checklists i came up with is called the four essential ingredients and that is the person a good partner, lover, companion and friend. and i think -- >> i didn't hear looks or money anywhere in there. >> it's not in there. and bonus points if you get it. but i think if you have those
